Stupor Discussion

I recommend having a 3:1 spit of Dead of Winter and Bontu's Last Reckoning , or at least a 2:2 split. Dead of Winter scales to kill big creatures in the late game and is able to kill pretty much anything they play before turn 3 without the huge downside that Reckoning has. Plus, playing snow lands lets you play some Frostwalk Bastion as a budget Mutavault ; manlands are relatively important in 8-Rack to help increase the clock and Bastion can even buy you an extra turn when it blocks.

Next: 8-Rack's goal is to get each player to topdeck mode as fast as possible, and while Necrogen Mists is a really good value card, its higher cmc means it doesn't get them to start topdecking as fast as a normal discard spell does and it literally does nothing to the opponent once you get into topdeck mode. Liliana's Caress is in the same boat since it doesn't make them discard.

I recommend cutting the Necrogen Mists and the Liliana's Caress es to play 4 Blackmail , 2 Funeral Charm , and 2 Stupor . Funeral Charm can make them discard cards as well as remove early game creatures while Blackmail and Stupor are both decent discard spells. They are less expensive than Necro Mists/Lili's Caress, too.

Instead of Mind Rot , use Stupor

Have a look at Noxious Revival instead of Reclaim as it is strictly better. I like Wrench Mind over Stupor, that's just preference though.

Thank you both for the suggestions. I will be adding Expedition Map to search for Cabal Coffers and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Toxic Deluge is also going in after I realized that this deck didn't have an answer for indestructible.Liliana's Specter will also be added, due to its low mana cost. Additionally, I will run Stupor, Whispers of Emrakul, and Wrench Mind. If I include Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists, I will also include Phyrexian Arena to ensure that I am not top-decking.

The suggestions were greatly appreciated. FYI, I finally got a chance to play the deck in a multiplayer setting, and it drew a lot of hate immediately. It was great!Sorry, I forgot to tag you both. MegaMatt13 TheWallinator74

Hey, I feel like you may be a little light on the discard effects even in an 8-rack list.

Personally I am a fan of both Smallpox and Stupor in the budget build of this deck, the Extirpate's are cool tech but the 4-of is a little much, additionally Liliana's Caress feels like a win-more card not really adding anything to the deck.

Exactly. I think running both of them will make the deck inefficient.

Cards like Megrim and Liliana's Caress and Raiders' Wake want the opponent to discard as many as possible. Mass discard spells like Stupor and Mind Sludge work better here.

Cards like Shrieking Affliction and The Rack and Quest for the Nihil Stone don't really care whether the card was cast or discarded, so pinpoint discard works better--just take their most threatening things, and let them play the nonthreatening ones. Discard like Inquisition of Kozilek or Duress is what you want with this strategy.

This is just a few general ideas; obviously, both types of discard will work with both strategies, but this subtle difference is why you won't want to split your strategy.

Heres a bunch of cards that should help you out - nothing extremely expensive.

Raven's Crime, The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Stupor, Smallpox, Funeral Charm, Nezumi Shortfang
